Karl Stefanovic & Allison Langdon get candid about their friendship , ratings pressure and their turbulent Today Show journey. But 18 months down the track, it' s clear it was exactly the start they needed. What it did was shift the attention away from Karl and Allison, who were tasked with righting the Today ship after a tumultuous couple of years during which Karl was sacked while on his honeymoon with wife Jasmine Yarbrough – only for him to return to the desk with Allison a little over a year later when the team of Georgie Gardner and Deborah.

Today Show stars Karl Stefanovic and Allison Langdon prove that the love and camaraderie between them is genuine and not just for the cameras, as they opt to go on a luxurious double date with their partners in New Zealand.

It was – literally – a baptism of fire. As bushfires raged around the country at the start of 2020, Today's new co-hosting duo, Karl Stefanovic and Allison Langdon, fronted TV for the first time, with Karl admitting on air, it "was not the start we thought we would have".

But 18 months down the track, it's clear it was exactly the start they needed.

What it did was shift the attention away from Karl and Allison, who were tasked with righting the Today ship after a tumultuous couple of years during which Karl was sacked while on his honeymoon with wife Jasmine Yarbrough – only for him to return to the desk with Allison a little over a year later when the team of Georgie Gardner and Deborah Knight were axed.

After the chair-swapping, a tsunami of bad press and a ratings nosedive, the pressure was on Karl and Allison to perform.

The fires, then the pandemic, gave them the perfect opportunity.

"We came in and the focus was the story – as opposed to us and our relationship," Allison, 42, tells TV WEEK.

"It was probably the best thing for us to try to cement what we were going to be to the Australian public, which is informative, credible and then, finally, entertaining – the jovial stuff that comes with the mix of breakfast TV," Karl, 46, says.

"If you get the serious stuff right, you can peg back a few gears and have a bit of a laugh."

Light and shade. The fact that they can squeeze in laughs around the edges of the daily COVID coverage is to their credit. It's also nice to know that the playful on-air banter between Karl and Allison continues even when the cameras aren't rolling.

Having great friends to share your life with is a gift like no other, and having a “best friend ” is one of life’ s most precious gifts. A true friend is a companion who will be there for you no matter what. You can be 100% yourself around them with no judgement, and they’ll love and support you through thick and thin. Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It’ s not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship , you really haven’t learned anything.

In fact, many people, including the Dutch authorities, said that Laura’ s trip was too 20 dangerous for someone so young; they believed that she should be stopped.

Here's an example…

Karl: She [Allison] still makes me very nervous whenever I come in and she's so well-prepared. And she's so in the moment that I feel very intimidated.

Allison: Half of that is true. I do come in well-prepared. He's never been intimidated.

K: You get that glint in your eye and I know I'm in for a torrid three-and-a-half hours of television. Her mood controls the nation's mood. If it's spectacular, it's spectacular. If it's a little bit…

A: Hang on – when is my mood anything other than spectacular?

While they have a natural ease with each other, Karl acknowledges that "chemistry takes time".

a group of people sitting at a table: Yes, seeing the family together is one of the most wonderful and special parts about reunions, but you have to admit things can get a bit hectic among the family you didn't choose. In previous years, you probably didn't really feel excited for these gatherings. Now, you miss them so much!Click through to see the hilariously predictable relatives you'll find at nearly every family reunion, and hopefully you will soon be able to see them and feel that mix of cheer and that good ol' fashioned fear.

"The hard part isn't the interviews, it's not the bread and butter," he says. "It's what happens in between the moments. What comes from left field only adds to the chemistry. You don't want to sit back and be stale. This isn't a stale relationship. Trust is a big thing."

Doctor Doctor cancelled: Rodger Corser joins Today Extra as a co-host

  Doctor Doctor cancelled: Rodger Corser joins Today Extra as a co-host Less than 24 hours after the network pulled the plug on the drama series, Rodger showed up on morning show Today Extra as a guest co-host on Friday .The 48-year-old was filling in for David Campbell, who had earlier stepped in for Karl Stefanovic on the Today show. © Provided by Daily Mail ( His appearance wasn't announced beforehand, which suggests it may have been a last-minute decision.Usually when David is filling in for Karl on Today, he is replaced on Today Extra by Richard Wilkins.

Today she has changed a lot but we are still best friends and now I think Natasha is a very charming and pretty seventeen-year-old girl. She isn't tall and I can't even say that she is of average height but she is always smart and elegant. My friend is a wonderful person and an optimist; she is never bored but always smiles and laughs, that is why I like her fascinating smile very much. I believe that friendship should be sincere. In my opinion your friend should be attentive to you, he or she should be reliable, honest and he or she should trust you.

Ultimately, our friends also become our family. A true friendship makes life easy and gives us good times. Answer 2: A true friend is someone who is always completely honest. Moreover, even if we don’t talk to them every day, we know they will be there for us. Thus, silence never gets awkward with them. We may not talk to them or see them for a long time, but when we meet them, it will be like old times.

For Allison, the biggest challenge the former 60 Minutes reporter has faced since joining Today is "being able to switch off" once the show finishes.

"You switch back on again late in the afternoon, and you're back into it again, but you actually need to deliberately step away [from work]," she says.

"It [work] is consuming, and you're talking to people going through a lot – people have lost loved ones. At the end of the show it can be hard to just forget it."

"I've loved going home straight after the show and living in an enclave," Karl, who has one-year-old daughter Harper with Jasmine, says. I've actually really enjoyed that with a newborn."

He describes being a dad again – he shares three children with ex-wife Cassandra Thorburn – as "fantastic" and a "beautiful time".

Karl admits the scrutiny of his private life has been "awful" at times ("if I never see another paparazzo again I'll be happy", he says), especially for Jasmine, "who never asked for this".

The co-star feuds you didn't know about

  The co-star feuds you didn't know about Entertainment is a competitive business, so it shouldn't be surprising that there might be a few, er, disagreements between stars. Of course, no one would ever know - any given breakfast or radio show in Australia is all smiles, friendly banter and seamless chemistry. Entertainment is a competitive business, so it shouldn't be surprising that there might be a few, er, disagreements between stars. Of course, no one would ever know - any given breakfast or radio show in Australia is all smiles, friendly But behind closed doors, there's a lot more going on.

However, things have settled down.

Allison says she's "flown under the radar", in terms of tabloid attention. But if that changes…

"In my capacity, I will protect you," Karl tells his co-host. "The reality is we have an incredibly strong relationship and we're doing something we both love."

It's obvious their friendship extends beyond work.

"Ally came over with her kids to her [Harper's] birthday," he says. "It's a big family. It's never been like that on the show, really. We're all in it together and we're all trying to do our best for each other."

Are Karl and Jasmine keen to have another child?

"I think we're very open to it," he says. "We've had such a great time with Harper. If we're fortunate to, down the track, then for sure. I'm not getting any younger, but I think having healthy young kids is such a gift.

If we can, we will. And that means doing breakfast TV for another 15 years to pay school fees!"

"I'm stuck with you for 15 years?" Ally, who has two children – son Mack and daughter Scout with husband and fellow journalist Michael Willesee Jr – quips.

It will be a task to beat rival breakfast show, Channel Seven's Sunrise. But they're making inroads – in 2020, Today topped Sunrise in the 16-39 demographic.

"We can't really think about it," Allison says of the ratings.

"We've had a lot of changes, and a lot of changes aren't great for a breakfast show," Karl concedes. "For us, it's about getting our thing right and getting a response from viewers – that's all that matters. If we win, we win, and if we don't, we don't. And I'll be off the show again.

"We put so much work and energy into our show. I'm one of the most energetic people you'll ever come across. It's rock'n'roll. From 5.30am we're on, and hold on to your hats! We go hard for our viewers, so good luck trying to match it."
